Mmmm, pancakes. I really should make them more often! I had a bit of a 'headache' this morning from the sangria last night. Pancakes help you feel better when that happens!
Pancakes from The Joy of Cooking
Blend in a bowl:
1 1/2 cups flour
3 TB sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
In another bowl, whip:
1 1/2 cups milk
3 TB melted, unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla, optional
Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Fold together until blended. Some lumps are ok.
Lightly oil a large skillet set over medium heat. Ladle approximately 1/2 cup of batter onto the skillet or griddle. When bubbles start to appear, carefully flip the pancakes and allow to finish cooking, about one minute.
Serve with fruit, syrup, butter, whatever you like!
Makes approximately 12 5-inch pancakes.
If you are serving several people, you can keep the pancakes warm in a 200 degree oven.
